Creative Authority Novel & Memoir Academy

Give yourself the gift of fulfilling your writing dream!

Are you ready to write the book you have in your mind? Are you ready to become the writer you are in your heart?

This program is for you if you have a book you want to write—and you want to do it right, so that your dream of writing a book is fulfilled and your readers are delighted with what you give them.

I’ve been writing and teaching writing for 35 years and I’m inspired on a daily basis by meeting and working with people with the dream to write a book. I have helped many of them realize their dream and I can help you too.

I’ve also seen many people give up after wasting their time, energy, and money trying to write their book and find their audience without guidance and method. If you don’t want to waste your time and energy to write a good book, I’ve got a program that will get the job done.

Now is a great time to write a good book and get it to your audience. You can this and enjoy stepping into your identity as a writer while you have a real effect on your readers’ lives.

I would have no hesitation recommending Ginger to anyone aspiring to become a writer, or needing professional assistance in any of the stages between inspiration and publishing.

As I turn off my computer for the last time before Thanksgiving I am pausing to reflect on those things and people for which I am grateful. Coming to mind pretty near the top of the list is Ginger Moran, and how lucky and happy I am that we reconnected after (gasp) over 40 years and that she is helping me realize a project I’ve want to do for longer than I am willing to admit. Steve Moriarity, author of Restitution
